ASCENT Center for Technical Knowledge® Launches Four New Autodesk Official Certification Preparation Books

Autodesk Official Certification Preparation Books and Autodesk Official Training Guides will be Available at Autodesk University 2013.

FRAMINGHAM, MA

Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its courseware division, ASCENT – Center for Technical Knowledge, is introducing four Autodesk Official Certification Preparation books. These new books assist with exam preparation by compiling all ASCENT-authored content relevant to Autodesk’s Certified Professional exam topics and objectives into a single volume for each software certification exam. All ASCENT Official Certification Preparation books will be showcased, along with ASCENT’s full selection of Autodesk Official Training Guides (AOTG), at Autodesk University (booth #2114) from December 3-5 at the Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
 
“Individuals preparing for certification are often quite experienced with the software and have had previous training,” says Paul Burden, director of product development, ASCENT. “Through feedback from our customers, we saw the biggest need for this type of user was a consolidated resource that focused on the topics they should review prior to taking the certification exams. Rather than requiring multiple books, we have a solution for experienced users in a single publication to help them with their preparation.”
 
Each Official Certification Preparation book contains a collection of instructional topics, practice exercises and review questions from ASCENT’s Autodesk Official Training Guides designed to fully prepare users for the topics and objectives covered in the Certified Professional exam.
 
ASCENT’s new Official Certification Preparation books include: 
The Official Certification Preparation books will be available for purchase at ASCENT’s booth (#2114), plus they will be on loan in the Autodesk University 2013 Certification Lab to assist those seeking Autodesk Certified Professional status at the event.
 
ASCENT authors, Michelle Rasmussen, an AutoCAD Civil Infrastructure expert and Autodesk Certified Instructor, and Jennifer MacMillan, an Autodesk Inventor expert and Autodesk Certified Professional, will also be in the Certification Lab, offering assistance to attendees preparing for the exam. Michelle will be available on Tuesday, December 3 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Wednesday, December 4 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Jennifer will also be available on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. -- 11:00 a.m. and from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
